Why did Jesus come? Why was he born of a virgin? Why did he die? Why was he raised from the dead? What is the purpose of Christianity? If we don't understand the purpose of Christianity we won't understand the Church's purpose, or the pastor's purpose or our purpose. For most western Christians the answer is so that we can go to heaven when we die. But Jesus didn't talk that much about going to heaven when you die. The Bible says that Jesus went around preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God? What exactly does Kingdom of God mean? In order to answer these questions we must first understand the condition that the world, mankind, the world system were in before Jesus came.
